With ongoing research towards clean combustion, hydrogen has been identified as a potential alternative to natural gas fuel, for example in power generation sectors utilizing gas turbines because of their inherent nature of being a carbon-free energy carrier. However, it is crucial to clarify that the ultimate goal is not just carbon-free...

The energy transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources is crucial for climate resilience. In particular, hydrogen combustion in gas turbine combustors is expected to play an essential role in the energy transition. Hence, a fuel-flexible gas turbine combustor operating with a wide range of natural gas and hydrogen fuels is necessary...

Hydrogen is a promising fuel for both reducing greenhouse gas emissions and being used as an energy carrier for renewable energy sources. The adaption of hydrogen instead of natural gas as a fuel in gas turbine combustors introduces additional challenges regarding flame stability. One instabilities is boundary layer flashback. This phenomenon...

To reduce emissions from civil aviation, research is being conducted in lean premixed hydrogen combustors as part of the APPU project at the TU Delft. Next to mitigating CO2 emissions completely, these technologies have the potential to also reduce NOx emissions greatly, allowing for the future of civil aviation to become sustainable. However,...

The growing energy demand and climate change poses a need for alternative energy generation in terms of renewable resources. Renewable energy resources are characterised by their intermittent behaviour. A backup power supply is required that can deliver electricity when the supply from the renewables is not sufficient. Gas turbines operating...

Due to the growing energy demand and global warming renewable energy is currently of interest. To deal with the production intermittency of renewable energy, energy might be stored in hydrogen. Hydrogen can be converted into electricity with a fuel cell or by combusting hydrogen in a gas turbine. Gas turbines are more suitable for large power...

This study presents the numerical modeling of boundary layer flame flashback in premixed tube burners with turbulent flow and high hydrogen content. The modeling approach is based on a RANS turbulence model and a flamelet combustion model using a flame surface density approach in combination with multiple turbulent flame speed correlations to...

Flame flashback is a failure mode in the operation of lean premixed combustion system. Due to higher flame speeds and lower quenching distances, hydrogen-rich fuel mixtures are prone to boundary layer flashback (BLF), where mixture flow speeds are low compared to the local flow velocity. Research at TU Munich (Eichler 2011) has resulted in new...

The idea of using hydrogen as a medium for storing excess renewable energy is gathering momentum but to deliver, several technological advances are required. One of the main challenges is boundary layer flame flashback (BLF) as a key operability issue for low NO<sub>x</sub> premixed combustion of hydrogen-enriched fuels; thus design of tools to...

Hydrogen is a clean and carbon-free fuel and is considered a key element for the energy transition. Renewable power generation by solar and wind is increasing, requiring flexible operation to balance the load on the energy grid with the ability to rapidly adjust the output. Gas turbines with a combustion system for hydrogen operation offers a...

Björnsson, Olafur (author)
Flame flashback is an intrinsic problem in lean premixed combustion. Due to higher flame speeds and lower quenching distances, hydrogen-rich fuel mixtures are especially prone to boundary layer flashback (BLF). Research at TU Munich (Eichler 2011, Baumgartner 2014) has resulted in new insights into the mechanism of BLF, revealing a strong...

Tober, Joeri (author)
A highly accurate model is presented that predicts boundary layer flashback (BLF) for lean premixed hydrogen combustion. In contrast to existing models, that fail for lean hydrogen mixtures, the present model includes the effect of flame instabilities. The model is applied to study the effect of burner geometry on flashback tendency. A diverging...
